. before you is a request for a conditional use authorization under planning sections to allow un new automotive repair shop within an existing vacant commercial building. the proposal is to relocate from its current location the 23730 mission street. the existing building will not be expanded. the ground floor will be used for auto repair activities and office uses, accessory to the business. the back rooms will be used for painting. the mezzanine will be used for storage and a break area. the new location will allow the owner to install new equipment and provide for new jobs for the community. the proposal is the relocation of existing automotive repair shop and existing building -- the existing building has been in that location since 1977. this is an independent news and locally owned which has been encouraged. historically the previous uses on the side have been similar uses with compatible impact. staff has received contracts from three neighbors concerned about noise and odor. since the packets were distributed, we received one e- mail from a neighbor with similar concerns i ha
is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population of people as felons and prevent them from getting ho
plan to serve it but once the conditional use is given, the next person can come in and change it. those are things you could make conditions -- if they only really want to be open until 10:00 or 11:00, pick one and make it a condition. you could make that a condition. in other places, there was probably no condition put on it. it was a restaurant and a conditional use and the next thing it was all beer because a different owner came and joined them and they were only given the right to serve alcohol until 11. the next thing they wanted to go until 2:00 because they wanted to become part of the bar scene. just so they could sell alcohol. not saying these people are going to do that, but the next person that comes in will have this conditional use and no conditions. i don't put think there were conditions added because you got it confusing advice at that time that maybe you couldn't do it and there are rumors and there is no point in my going into it but there are still rumors that one of those businesses is thinking about making some major changes that would making that neighborho
in this location. because even though the appellant did not request us to have restricted food items, we chose to do so. but, to be clear, the reason we have those trucks is because of the wanted to work with them in another location, we would have to have them on our permit. it is a very simple process. so, when we update our permit, at the multiple permit is new. we are the first individual group to have this permit that allows us to look at multiple on the same permit. when we update those trucks, we do not receive a revised permit that lists all of our trucks that are part of our permit. we have gone through this process and updated our vendors. in the pellet's brief, they mentioned that we placed a truck at front. there is a process for dpw handling these issues. they could have called dpw and they could have sent somebody to verify and we could have been held in violation. we, without anybody knowing, we placed somebody down there as a mistake. what we did was caught the mistake without anybody mentioning anything to us and two days later, that that truck was added in. they have the prop

response, ask the mayor to tell us how he has handled the letter that we sent. and i think that maybe something that does not need to await for a future meeting. my question would be, could the commissioners -- the chair sent a letter to the mayor asking that on our behalf so that we can move more expeditiously, or would it be more prudent to have us look at such a letter at a future meeting? >> you cannot authorize the chair to send the letter in this agenda item. because it is only for -- >> it was not on our agenda for tonight. i would agree with commissioner renne, as i told you. i think we should have some follow-up on that matter.>> any? >> i will discuss it with the city attorney after the meeting. it may be that it is within the authority of the chair to do something like that. >> ok. i have no objection to having it put on the agenda for a future meeting. to request follow-up from the mayor. any other items? commissioner studley: i am interested in the report from the analyst and i am interested to put discussion of that report on our agenda. at that point, it might be useful
activist there says the rebels destroyed seven of them. the activist says the free syrian army is using guerrilla tactics in the fight. government forces have retaliated with repeated attacks on opposition positions. state television reports the government side has pushed the opposition side back close to the border with turkey. government pilots have dropped bombs on densely populated areas where opposition forces have fled. civilian casualties are expected to rise. >>> united nations officials have withdrawn half of their observers from syria. about 140 monitor also remain on the ground. >> we have to hope that the whole process gains traction, that the vicious circle of violence can cease. >> he cited syria's deteriorating security as the key factor in the decision. still he said those who remain will continue with their work. u.n. security council members voted last week to extend the mission by 30 days, but the monitors have been forced to suspend most of their patrols since mid-june after syria entered a state of civil war. >>> turkey's government has met to discuss neighboring sy
challenge is figuring out how to adapt to the growing use of mobile technology. nearly all of facebook's revenues come from advertising, and that's more difficult with smaller screens. that's part of the reason facebook shares have gotten crushed-- they're down nearly 30% from the offering price of $38 in may. but some analysts still think the stock's a "buy." >> i think making money on facebook ultimately comes down to their ability to monetize mobile. it's almost binary. if they figure out a way to make money, the stock will be very successful; if they don't, then the stock will underperform the market. >> reporter: for now, many investors remain skeptical. when facebook went public, it had a valuation of $100 billion. now, it's closer to $60 billion. erika miller, nbr, new york. >> reporter: i'm diane eastabrook. still ahead--i'll tell you how the weber company is still keeping the grilling industry on fire after 60 years.

[laughter] ok. >> hi. you think this will be easy? when the planning department went through the president, but presidency, they elected someone who was just appointed to be vice president. i'm not saying they made a bad choice. what i would say is this. i think whoever is nominated for president should serve at least one year on the board so they have some seasoning. that way -- i see new commissioners when they come in. they're good people, but there is a learning curve to this. i would say that whoever wants to be president, they have to least serve one-year on the board because -- befor
operate in this common use space in our international terminal, the airlines formed a consortium made up of the 30 airlines that have operations in the international terminal. this was created by the airlines that operate in the international terminal and represents the airlines as they pump filter maintenance and operating obligations under their individual leases with the airport. the new agreement before you today continues the practice we have had in the past of maintaining, offering, and scheduling the use of city-owned equipment and operating systems as well as scheduling the use of joint i.t. functions like ticket counters and gates and allocates the associated costs related to city-owned equipment and operating systems for the users of the equipment in that international terminal. due to the integrated nature of this system and the services used to provide customer service to airport passengers in the international terminal, this represents the most efficient and cost-effective way for the airport to share in their use. they are responsible for the custodial, electrical fees, wat

a housing crisis in san francisco. housing affordability crisis. this charter amendment will move us in the direction of addressing that crisis we are at risk of losing a primary source of affordable housing funding. the housing trust fund will recapture that funding and make sure we are dedicating it to affordable housing. this trust fund does more than establish a sustainable stream of funding for several decades. it also recognizes in addition to a government investment, we also have to make sure that we are providing the private sector with the proper incentives to create enough housing to meet our population's demand. public investment and private investment are two pieces of the puzzle. this recognizes the balance. this resulted from a terrific collaborative process. i strongly support it and i encourage you to do so as well. i want to thank the mayor's office who played a key role in moving this forward. president chiu: supervisor kenneth. -- kim. supervisor kim: it will hopefully be moving forward to the november ballot this fall. many of us campaigned on pushing and supporti

miller who joins us now that the letter inside spoke of shooting people and included crude drawings of a gunman and his victims. do we know, john, from your sources, have you heard why this letter wasn't discovered sooner? >> well, we have a little conflict there. what we were told by law enforcement sources earlier in the day. and i have to say, this has been made extremely more difficult than it needs to be by a gag order that's been placed on all of the investigators and the district attorney who's not commenting. so getting information is like pulling teeth, even in an issue of public concern. but to update that, what we're told is it was mailed before the shooting, possibly days before the smohooting. what the university is saying now is it arrived at their facilities services building on monday, july 23, that it was in the mix of mail there. and that when they found it, investigators were called. they looked atle package. they looked at a bomb squad. that caused the evacuation of the building right around 12:30. so it appears as pressure from this story builds, people a diggin
can make a determination on. >> asked us -- access for emergency vehicles, is there a requirement for the lock box? >> the understanding is that this was reviewed by the fire department and police department. they have determined that this facility satisfies their needs. the department would take that piece of information that we received as this is accessible to these emergency service vehicles. >> i have a couple of questions. the intended use was not for people to load and unload items and have access. someone from dpw advised intended use was for something other than that. can you speak to that? >> it deadends where exit points are provided. there is no fair repair. it is not a thoroughfare as it relates to public right-of-way. it does not appear to the department that people would use this as a doorway -- their fair -- thoroughare. -- thoroughfare. that appears to be what these un [inaudible] and to provide access. >> no documentation that would limit the use of that l.a.? >> there is no limitations. >> the other thing is i would like to hear from the department on the chrono
. and there are questions that remain. we're told there's verbiage kind of a pent-up, was the phrase used writings about shooting people. and that there were some very ruddment tear images in there of a shooter and victims. but the real question, anderson, which i know is what we're all wondering is a, were was there anything in there that was specific to the date the batman show or something else. and b, is there anything that gives -- that sheds any light on moti motive. and right now, we can't learn th that. >> john, stick around. i want to bring in james alan fox who we often consult with. professor, you say it's not unusual for mass murderers to actually reach out to people before actually committing a crime. >> right. they reach out in either a threat or a call for help. but it's not unusual for them also to send letters, timed so they will be received after the shooting in an explanation for why they did what they did. there was a shooter at the university of iowa who sent letters to the media, time when his rampage was committed. in arizona, same thing. frequently, mass murderers will send lette
to work with troubled teenagers. she joins us later. we begin with breaking news. al package from the alleged shooter found in the news room. at the university of colorado. he mailed it days before the massacre, addressing it to one of his professors at the university colorado's campus in aurora. it arrived days before the shooting but was not discovered until monday afternoon when police found it in the mail room. . they sent in the bomb squad, handled it by robot and x-rayed the parcel just in case. sources telling john miller who joins us now that the letter inside spoke of shooting people and included crude drawings of a gunman and his victims. do we know, john, from your sources, have you heard why this letter wasn't discovered sooner? >> well, we have a little conflict there. which is what we were told by law enforcement sources earlier in the day. and i have to say, this has been made extremely more difficult than it needs to be by a gag order that's been placed on all of the investigators and the district attorney who's not commenting. so getting information is like pullin

it and frame it to others, is whether time is working for you or against you, time has worked for the u.s. we healed the corporate sector balance seats and a lot of the consumers balance sheets, and haven't done anything about the government. time is working against europe. that's why you had a lot of economists pleading to act quicker, and it shows you where traders are. people are short, so when you get people saying we'll use our balance sheet, even if it's only to buy time, that tells an investor if you're not facing a disaster, stocks are reasonably priced. i like to hear those comments. he is a close technician. he was watching 1330 like the rest of us and knows where to make his statements. >> and he put a floor under stocks. >> yes, look at the market internals, i'm not terribly delighted with what i've seen today, but on a day, if there's really good macro economic news, the industrials would be up strong and materials. it's utility stocks an consumer stocks. the market now believe most amount of central bank posturing is going to change the fundamental macro economic view. and indus
